What happens after I apply?

Failure to provide all required forms and class schedule will result in delayed certification. The sequence of events will occur in ration to the use of your VA education benefits:

  • Submit your online application to begin using VA education benefits. You’ll receive an email from VA confirming the application was received. Forward the confirmation email to the School Certifying Official. Additionally, you’ll receive an award letter, also referred to as Certificate of Eligibility. A copy of this letter may suffice for the previously mentioned confirmation email. 
  • Set up an eBenefits account to see all of your certification, payments, and remaining entitlement. 

Once You Are Certified:

  • Your Certificate of Eligibility will include information verifying your attendance. You’ll continue to receive benefits as long as you keep the Certifying Official notified of your schedule. 
  • The Post 9/11 G.I. Bill book allowance will be distributed after your certification is submitted to VA.
